Wesley Fofana is set to undergo with chelsea medical ahead of the £70m move from Leicester.
According to The Athletic, this is for the “peace of mind” of new owner Toddy Boehly following Fofana’s serious injury last season. He missed most of the campaign due to a fractured fibula.
“He won’t be available for the weekend [against Chelsea] and has trained with the U23 team,” Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers stated last week. I am focused on the squad and the guys we have. I can’t let my energy level drop. The clubs will be used if anything has to be done. We will have to make due with what we have till then.
This frustrated the player and he sat out the Foxes’ last two games against Chelsea and Southampton.
“My concentration is on the players that we have, and the team. I can’t lose energy. If something will be done, it will be done with the clubs. Until that happens we just have to work with what we have.”
